What is the difference between the STA Diploma and CFTe?
The CFTe is the International Federation of Technical Analysts’ (IFTA) two-stage qualification. CFTe Level I is a multiple choice paper which is very similar to the STA Diploma Part 1 examination. CFTe Level II is an essay based question paper, similar to the STA Diploma Part 2 exam, but half an hour longer. Both IFTA’s CFTe I and II papers were for several decades set and marked by the STA but over the past few years IFTA have set and marked their own exams.
On achieving MSTA status, students can also receive the International Federation of Technical Analysts’ CFTe accreditation and certificate on payment of an administration fee of $200.
